I have read threads about people not able to open their trunks, but this is something different.
If I pop my trunk (doesn't matter if it's with the fob, dash button or trunk button) the trunk pops properly, then I open the trunk, do whatever task I needed to do, then I go to close the trunk.
Here is where the problem arises. Just before the trunk closes the latch makes its open noise again and the trunk won't latch, I lift it up an inch or so it resets, then I go to close it and opens again. Sometimes this happens twice other times over 30. Right now my trunk is open in the parking lot because I was so sick of it.
Once I do finally get it closed and latched it stays that way and never randomly opens or pops.
What might be wrong? My thoughts were a faulty latch, but I'm not sure whats triggering it or one or more of the wires in the trunk harness thing have rubbed through.
I have sort of eliminated one of the switches being bad since it seems to do it regardless of the switch I use to pop the trunk, and I would think that if a switch was making contact, the trunk would randomly pop.
Any thoughts are appreciated. Such a little thing brings great irritation.
